Tesla Ceramic Paint Protection Specialist
Tesla paint has been heavily criticised as being fragile and inconsistent in application. Tesla cars are manufactured in south Fremont, California, where the environmental requirements are quite strict. This results in the Tesla’s paint being not as “hard” as the paint finishes of some other premium manufacturers.
Some owners of Tesla Cars have been disappointed with the finish of the paint even only after a couple of months or as little of a 1000 km’s. Reports of swirl marks, light scratches and a grey haze over the paintwork which has dulled the true colour of the Tesla’s paintwork.
Adelaide Paint Protection have a solution to this problem is to install a Ceramic Coating Paint Protection treatment. The ceramic coating when cured to your cars paint, transforms into a transparent ultra hard glass film on top of the paintwork.
The ceramic paint protection will easily outperforms and outlast older products like wax, sealants and paint protection films (PPF). Unlike the older generation of paint protections like wax and sealants, the ceramic paint protection forms a permanent bond with the coating of your Tesla paintwork which can only be removed by machine polishing.
- High gloss shine, scratch resistant layer that cannot be matched by premium waxes.
- Offers superior protection compared to paint protection packages offered by car dealerships.
- Protects not only paintwork, but alloy wheels, plastic trim, glass.
- Self-cleaning abilities means your car will stay cleaner for longer.
- Protects against swirl marks / light scratches.
- Superior gloss levels compared to car wax.
- Chemical resistant, can not be washed away like car wax and can only be removed with machine polishing.

The ceramic coated surfaces gain a highly-hydrophobic surface that results to an easy-clean surface requiring little to no time and effort for a superior shine. Your Tesla stays cleaner and shinier for longer with the ceramic coating paint protection. Always with a better than showroom look!
Controlling how water interacts with your vehicle is the key to effortless maintenance and a beautiful finish.
There are two main forces to understand when it comes to water behaviour – these are ‘cohesion’ and ‘adhesion’. Cohesion refers to water’s tendency to stick to itself (it is the force that generates surface tension), adhesion refers to water’s tendency to cling to other surfaces. Without chemically altering the water, we can not have an effect on its cohesive properties. So to force water to bead and slide off, we need to reduce its ability to adhere to surfaces – we do this be increasing the hydrophobicity of the surface.
When a surface is made to be hydrophobic, water will bead and slide right off.
What does hydrophobic mean?
Hydrophobicity refers to the ability of a material to shed water. If you’ve ever looked at how water rolls off of a brand new high-quality rain jacket, you get the idea. Hydrophobic surfaces force water to bead up and roll off, because they don’t provide anything for the water to stick to. Jackets do this by using a chemical “Durable Water Repellent” (DWR) coating, which wears out over time.
Ceramic coatings accomplish the goal of hydrophobicity by being incredibly smooth. As there is no texture for the water to adhere to, it has nowhere to go but off of your car. Ceramic coatings offer the best possible vehicle hydrophobicity protection and aesthetic result. Far better than Wax or a Polymer Sealant (mostly what car dealerships sell as Paint Protection!!)
What good is a hydrophobic coating for cars?
This is pretty simple, but it’s worth talking about. If water can’t stick, neither can dirt. The amount of dirt that your car collects day-to-day will decrease by orders of magnitude, and chemical contaminants like bird droppings can’t adhere nearly as well as they can to untreated vehicles.
Not only will your car stay cleaner for longer, but the washing process itself will be insanely easy. Anything that has managed to collect on your car is easily washed off, and the water will be instantly repelled.

Hi there! Vini Ferrari here from Adelaide Paint Protection.
Today I thought I would try to dispel some of the myths out there about Ceramic Coatings. I will discuss the four big ones I hear all the time. There are some coating companies that have an “As Seen On TV” type of marketing campaign. This can leave consumers with a warped sense of what a coating is, and its limitations. I’m going to explain what a coating is, and more what a coating is not. My goal is to provide you with information, so you have a realistic expectation of what a ceramic coating is.
Myth number one is that coatings are scratch proof.
If you get a coating on your vehicle, you won’t have to worry about scratches anymore.
You will see a lot of this on ceramic coating websites.
Then there is the MOHS scale, where some companies and their representatives claim that their product is one level removed from Diamond Hardness! If this were true you should be able to scratch Glass with a dried sample, I guarantee you this is not the case. We should simply assume that they don’t understand their product well enough, nor have the ability to understand the difference between Pencil Hardness and the MOHS scale.
Stop it please….
There are some exceptional coatings that are scratch resistant. Don’t confuse this with scratch proof. Pro detailers and consumers will often see scratches quite differently. I see it daily where a customer will believe that their paint is scratch free. They may be looking at their car in the garage or in a shaded area. You won’t see the true condition of your vehicles paint, unless you’re in direct sunlight.
If you have seen the inside of our studio, you begin to understand why we have over 100 x 6000 kelvin LED, Cree and diffused lights. What we are endevouring to do is ensure enough inspection light to find the deep scratches. Smaller scratches that you can see in direct sunlight are usually called swirl marks. They tend to be very small scratches in your paint that you see will form a spider web like pattern. With the reflected light coming off the surface, these fine scratches appear.
Anytime you touch the vehicles paint there is an opportunity to add swirl marks. Proper washing techniques are vital to keeping your coating in good condition.Dirty towels, brushes, dirt getting trapped between the wash mitts are simple ways to add swirl marks. Something as simple as brushing the paint as you walk by, could develop swirls. Professional grade Ceramic coatings offer real protection. They will help prevent some of these marks. Yet you must always remember, Ceramic Coatings are not scratch proof.High Quality Coatings offer a sacrificial layer that can be polished and reapplied if necessary.
Myth number two I’m not going to have to wash my car.
After one of the very first coatings that we did, a customer asked us, “is it true I never have to wash my car again?”Ceramic Coatings definitely make the car much easier to wash.The vehicle is going to stay cleaner for longer.But your car is still going to get dirty, even with the coating.
Myth number three is that coatings are permanent.
If you do enough research into ceramic coatings, you’re going to find information that is not true!Some will tell you the coating will form a permanent bond to the clearcoat. And come with a lifetime warranty……My problem with this one is the word permanent.It leads you to believe that once you have this coating on your vehicle that it’s going to be there forever. This is simply just not true. Think about it like this. You can put wax on a car, leave it for five years in a climate control garage. Come back the wax is still going to be on that surface after five years.
Technically you can say it lasted for five years. The reality is washing the car, the sun, and environmental Fallout are breaking down the vehicle’s protection. Nothing is permanent. The paint under the coating is not permanent. Everything on this earth has a life expectancy and will break down with time. Have a closer look at their warranties. They are riddled with holes and fine print that include many things that will void your warranty..
Myth number four is that coatings will peel off.
High Quality Ceramic Coatings form a strong bond on the top of your clearcoat. People think that when it fails, it’s gonna feel like a clear coat separating from the base coat.
When a coating degrades, like when wax fails, you’re not going to see peeling off. It wears away, and you’re only going to see that the beading and the dirt shedding qualities are poor.There’s also no worry if you get a stone chip. There’s no risk of the entire coating being compromised.When you take delivery of your newly coated car from Adelaide Paint Protection we include detailed instructions on how to maintain your car.We have Professional Car Wash specifically manufactured for Ceramic Coatings. Drying towels large enough to dry your bonnet without you laying a hand on it!

All You Need To Know About Car Paint Protection
Your attitude and pride for your car boost radically especially when your ride is your passion. Keeping it spic and span is tough when many factors like environmental fallouts, chemicals, sunlight, water, dirt, and grime are bound to dim the sheen. However, car paint protection is easy and manageable when you count on a nano-ceramic coating. Products like GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra are a perfect example of a Pro Grade coating for your car. In fact, it is a favorite product of serious car lovers all over the world.
What Is Nano-Ceramic Coating?
The nano-ceramic coating is suitable for protecting painted car surfaces. It is a very thin coating of 700 to 1000nm and is soft 7H base layer from inside and the hardest in the industry 10H from outside. Once applied it requires an infra-red curing period to deliver unrivalled shine for years. The nano-particles of the car paint protection liquid prevent sheen abuse due to natural, external, or chemical factors.
Nano Ceramic Coating Benefits – More Than You Expect
A nano-ceramic coating like GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra is suitable for applying on surfaces like car body paint, plastic trims, or bumpers for that matter. Applying the coating is left to professionals as intricate knowledge of the process is required. Some prominent advantages of applying the coating for car paint protection are:
Superior Application – One application of coating serves up to nine years offering the ultimate shine and fullest returns on the money spent. The surface of the car always looks clean and glossy just as it was when you bought the car.
Resistant to Environmental Fallouts – Environmental fallouts as well as bird poop is known to cause damage to car paint. Nevertheless, not anymore, coating like GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra helps to protect the paint from these damages.
Resistant to Chemicals – Nano ceramic coating is highly resistant to chemicals including the humid and salty climate at seashores. One application of this car paint protection coating has a lot to offer and peace of mind for the coming nine years too! – Guaranteed!!
Resistant to UV Rays – Car protection coating like GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra is fully UV resistant and works the same way a sun control cream with good SPF content works for you. Well, you need to apply it daily on your face but only one application of GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra coating lasts for years.
Hydrophobic – Water, dirt, and grime are known enemies of the paint surface. However, the nano-ceramic coating is highly hydrophobic and does not permit adherence of dirt and grime on the surface. Also, it requires less effort to clean and your car looks as stunning as the day you picked it up from the dealer.
Products like GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra are designed with due consideration of end-user needs and they perform up to the mark every time. Car paint protection is not a tough task anymore especially when nano-ceramic coating like GTECHNIQ Crystal Serum Ultra is available from Adelaide Paint Protection. Make sure you enjoy the most from benefits like stunning Gloss, scratch resistance, stain-free application, saltwater durability, easy cleaning, maximum durability, Hydrophobic abilities.
One of the most common questions I receive is, “Will this really prevent scratches like they claim”? When it comes to ceramic coatings, many companies make claims of how durable and long lasting their product is.
The answer to that is yes, in a way, but no coating will prevent stone chips, prevent a key scratch, etc. Paint protection Film or PPF is almost twice as thick as the thickest coating claim, and the only way to prevent damage is for the sacrificial layer (ceramic coating or PPF) to absorb that impact.
The claims of 9H Hardness is a little misplaced as well as it is not stated upon which scale, so many think to the more commonly known Mohs scale, which would mean it is almost as hard as a diamond. While that would be amazing, it is tested on the Pencil Hardness scale, meaning it is as hard as the most durable pencil lead. Still very durable don’t get me wrong, but that deliberately left out piece of info can be pretty misleading.
So how does it prevent scratching? In a very specific way. A ceramic coating will make the surface of the paint extremely slick and create high water contact angles. What this does it allow the dirt and debris on your paint to be less embedded in the paint, meaning it takes less effort to remove, thus less chance for that debris to damage the paint when removing. Also, less debris will stick the paint overall, again reducing the change for scratching.
So does it help prevent scratching? Yes absolutely. But the key work is help. Coatings are still an amazing protection option for your vehicle but they have their place and their limitations.
GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA VS OPTICOAT
How to protect the appearance of your new car? How can you keep it looking like it did the day you bought it.
Here’s part of the answer to that question: Apply
Ceramic Coating is a liquid polymer that is applied by hand to a vehicle’s exterior. After application, the coating creates a permanent or semi-permanent bond with the vehicle’s factory paint, creating a layer of protection. A premium coating will add value to your vehicle and help protect its appearance.
But even if you decide to apply a Ceramic Coating, there’s another question you have to answer: Which one?
There are dozens of coatings on the market, each with its own claims to greatness. Which one should you choose? In this article, we’ll help answer that question. We won’t be giving an exhaustive review of every Ceramic Coating on the market (nor would you ever findtime to read such a thing). Instead, we’ll be comparing two of the top Ceramic Coatings: Ceramic Pro and Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. First, we’ll talk about the similarities between between to two coatings. Then we’ll go over some differences. We’ll conclude with some thoughts on how to make the right decision for you and your vehicle.
SIMILARITIES BETWEEN OPTICOAT AND GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA
Both Opticoat and Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra have gained excellent reputations among Professional installers. Here are some similarities between the two products.
FIRST, BOTH COATINGS PROVIDE HIGH-PERFORMANCE PROTECTION FROM ENVIRONMENTAL CONTAMINANTS AND UV DAMAGE.
If you go with either one of these coatings, you can be confident you’ll get some of the best protection available in the Ceramic Coating category (keep reading for some of the protection limitations of Ceramic Coatings. Both coatings are efficient at protecting a vehicle’s factory paint from things like chemical stains and etching, or oxidation caused by UV exposure.
SECOND, BOTH COATINGS WILL IMPROVE GLOSS.
Both Opticoat and Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra are top-of-the-line aesthetically. Both coatings will enhance the depth and clarity of your car’s paint, as long as proper paint correction was performed before application.
THIRD, BOTH COATINGS WILL MAKE YOUR CAR EASIER TO CLEAN.
Because both coatings create a hydrophobic and chemically resistant surface, they make cleaning your vehicle much easier. Dirt and grime will have a harder time bonding with paint coated by Opticoat or Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. And any contaminants that do bond with your paint will be easier to remove.
FOURTH, NEITHER COATING IS A SUBSTITUTE FOR PAINT PROTECTION FILM WHEN IT COMES TO STOPPING ROCK CHIPS.
Despite any marketing claim by either company, neither Opticoat nor Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra can properly defend against things like rock chips and scratches. Even though both Paint Protection Film and Ceramic Coatings are quality paint protection products with some overlapping features, they are not interchangeable. If you’d like to learn more about the similarities and differences between Paint Protection Film and Ceramic Coatings, drop into our Studio and we can demonstrate the differences.
DIFFERENCES BETWEEN OPTICOAT AND GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA
FIRST, GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA IS HARDER THAN OPTICOAT.
The Mohs Hardness Scale is used to compare the relative scratch resistance of various minerals. Minerals are measured from 1H to 10H, with 1H being the least scratch resistant, and 10H being the most. For example, graphite is 1H-2H, while diamond is 10H.
Opticoat has long boasted of their Mohs Hardness rating of 9H. Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra, however, is rated at 10H.
SECOND, GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA LET’S YOU CHOOSE BETWEEN A HYDROPHOBIC SURFACE THAT BEADS OR SHEETS.
Hydrophobic Ceramic Coatings are built to repel water, but different coatings do so in different ways. Some coatings cause the water to bead, while others cause the water to sheet off. Beading is certainly visually pleasing to watch, and it helps you know you have protection on your factory paint. But the downside is that, if allowed to dry on the paint, water droplets can leave harmful mineral deposits that can damage the coating and shorten its lifespan. Sheeting, on the other hand, leaves less water on the surface, thus minimizing the chance of water damage.
Car enthusiasts have long debated the merits of beading vs sheeting, and ultimately its a matter that comes down to personal preference.
One nice thing about Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra is that you get to decide whether you want a coating that beads or sheets. Standard Crystal Serum Ultra will sheet water off its surface. But if you add an optional layer of Gtechniq EXO (a hydrophobic topper), you’ll see the beading effect. This option is referred to as Crystal Serum Ultra Black.
THIRD, OPTICOAT OFFERS A LIFETIME WARRANTY AT THEIR HIGHEST LEVEL APPLICATION.
Opticoat offers a lifetime warranty, provided you maintain the coating according to their standards and have it inspected annually by an authorized installer.
Gtechniq does not offer a lifetime warranty, but Crystal Serum Ultra does come with a 9 year guarantee.
FOURTH, OPTICOAT HAS BEEN AROUND LONGER AND HAS A LARGER FOLLOWING.
If you’ve done some reading on forums you’ve probably head Opticoat thrown around more than Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. That’s because Opticoat was an earlier player in top-of-the-line automotive Ceramic Coating market. Gtechniq released Crystal Serum Ultra a couple years ago. It has been well received by auto enthusiasts, and is gaining a larger following. But Opticoat certainly has a more established reputation at this point.
OPTICOAT VS. GTECHNIQ CRYSTAL SERUM ULTRA: WHAT’S BEST FOR YOU AND YOUR CAR?
Now that we’ve covered some similarities and differences, it’s time to make a decision on what’s best for your car. Here are some thoughts on how you can go about making the right decision.
AS FAR AS COATINGS GO, YOU WON’T GO WRONG WITH EITHER OF THESE PRODUCTS.
I hope the content we’ve covered so far has made it evident that both of these coatings are premium products, and both will perform at a very high level. If you have an expert apply either one of these coatings, you won’t be disappointed.
f a lifetime warranty is very important to you, you may want to go with Opticoat, however there are conditions to go with this. If you want the hardest possible coating or if you want a coating the sheets instead of beads, you may want to go with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. But when it comes down to it, there’s one other factor looming in the background that is really the most important part of this discussion.
WHAT’S MORE IMPORTANT THAN THE QUESTION OF WHICH COATING IS THE QUESTION OF WHO’S PUTTING IT ON.
That’s right. You could swap out these two coatings, or any of the top coating brands, and almost anyone on the planet would not be able to tell the difference. However, anyone can spot the difference between an expert coating application and a flawed coating application. Because these two products are permanent, the application process is meticulous, and there are a lot of opportunities for an amateur to make mistakes.
If you do some reading on the forums you’ll see experienced auto enthusiasts come back to this point again and again. Any protective product, be it a sealant, coating, or film, is only as good as the professional who applies it. If you have an inexperienced installer who improperly preps the paint and unevenly install the product, even the best coating product in the world will look terrible and perform poorly.
Do your research on coating installers in your area. Find someone who has been in the business for a long time. Read reviews on their service and reputation. Then ask that installer which coating he or she prefers. If it’s Opticoat, go with Opticoat. If it’s Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra, go with Gtechniq Crystal Serum Ultra. If it’s one of the other premium coatings like CQuartz Finest Reserve or Modesta, go with that one. And if you’ve picked the right installer, you won’t be disappointed.
We’ve heard all the common car detailing myths and we’ve seen first hand what the friendly detailing tip your neighbor gives you really does to your car (hint: it’s not pretty). Let’s get right into debunking a few of the most common car detailing myths.
10 Common Car Detailing Myths
1) It’s okay to use dish detergent to wash your car : This is one of the most pervasive car detailing myths. Detergent may create soap suds but that doesn’t mean it’s effective at cleaning your car. Dish detergent was not designed for automotive paint and should not be used on it in any scenario.
2) A shiny car is a clean car : There are many ways you can make a car shine without actually cleaning it, so just because your car is still shiny doesn’t mean you aren’t due for a wash.
3) It doesn’t matter what you use to wipe down your car : Many people use old towels or shirts to wipe down their cars but the fibers in towels and t-shirts are often rough and can scratch up your car’s clear coat and leave behind dirt. It’s best to use a drying towel designed for the job. The best choice is RAPID DRY TOWELS.
4) You can wait until your car is filthy before you wash it : The longer something sits on your car, the more likely it is to cause permanent damage. Biological contaminants like bug splatter, tar, and bird droppings are especially harmful to your car’s paint. If you spot anything at all that needs to be cleaned you should wash your car right away.
5) Wax lasts for years : Wax is a temporary solution. Under ideal circumstances, it only provides a few months worth of protection. If you want long-term protection you need a ceramic paint coating.
6) Air fresheners remove bad odors : Air fresheners simply mask bad odors. If you want to remove bad odors you’ll have to get down and dirty with some interior detailing.
7) There’s nothing you can do about water spots : Water spots are difficult, but not impossible, to remove. For a few tips on removing water spots check out this post. We have water spot removal products for purchase ($33.00) from our studio.
8) Polishing and waxing are the same thing : The terminology can get confusing but in general, polishing is something you do that removes minor imperfections while waxing is something that provides protection. Don’t assume that the detailer polishing your car also provides protection.
9) You should let your car air dry : Allowing your car to air dry is a great way to get some nasty water spots, which kind of defeats the purpose of washing it in the first place. It’s best to dry your car with a RAPID DRY TOWELS.
10) Machine polishing can damage paint : Don’t let this car detailing myth fool you, the polishing tools used by professionals are perfectly safe for your car. That’s what they were designed for, after all!

So you’ve decided to get a ceramic coating for your brand new car. It’s a smart step towards providing the most modern and effective method of paint protection for your vehicle that the market has to offer. But what should your next step be?
If you were thinking of letting the dealership give your car a courtesy detail service before you pick it up, then think again. The best option is to make arrangements to have your new car delivered to your ceramic coating installer directly after purchase. Here’s why:
Dealerships Can Damage the Paint
Don’t expect the dealership to treat your new vehicle with kid gloves. Lack of precaution on the dealer’s side can leave your new car’s paint with scratches.
The Dealership Might Wash the Car
That “detail service” that dealerships provide may be nothing more than a quick wash and wax using methods and equipment that can potentially ruin your paint. Ever see the swirling patterns that are left on a car’s surface after it has been washed using only the circular motion of cleaning? You don’t want that! Many dealerships lack the technical know-how to properly wash a vehicle, and may very well leave marks on your car that would then have to be corrected by the detailer prior to applying a ceramic coating.
Avoid the Unnecessary Waxing
You don’t need a wax job on your car if you’re getting a ceramic coating. The dealership’s impulse will be to apply a courtesy layer of wax on your vehicle. This is another opportunity to introduce marring and scratching due to improper methods. It is best to avoid this step.
The Plastic Wrapping Should Stay Intact
The first impulse of the dealership will be to tear away the plastic wrapping from your car to prep your new car before you pick it up. However, all of the above problems can be avoided if you have the car delivered to your detailer or you pick up the car yourself with the wrapping intact. It’s best to keep the wrapping intact until the car is ready to have the ceramic coat installed, ensuring the exterior finish is in pristine condition.
As you can see, there are many ways in which the dealership can actually end up harming your new car’s paint rather than protecting it. That is why the best strategy is to have your car delivered to the ceramic coating installer directly so that the ceramic coating can be applied on the car’s unspoiled surface.
Give us a call at Adelaide Paint Protection. We are certified to install both Gtechniq and CQUARTZ Finest Reserve. We can work with you to make arrangements to have your new car delivered directly to us prior to your ceramic coating installation.
When it comes to cars, nothing can outclass a Mercedes Benz. Mercedes cars are easily distinguishable by their luxurious interiors and striking designs that re-imagine classic car aesthetics. They also, as you know, don’t come cheap.You want to maintain that luxurious appearance and retain the value of your car, so how do you go about protecting your new Mercedes? One way is to apply a ceramic coating. So what exactly is so great about a ceramic coating?
Why Does Your Mercedes Need a Ceramic Coating?
Ceramic coatings offer superior protection
Ceramic coatings utilise the latest in advanced nanotechnology. Ceramic coatings work by filling in the pores in the paint of your car, creating a permanent, hard surface that will resist minor scratches and keep corrosive contaminants from causing damage. Ceramic coatings from companies such as GTechniq have 3 – 4 times the hardness of a regular clear coat. Your factory paint job will be protected and preserved.
Ceramic coatings keep your car looking great
In addition to providing unparalleled protection, ceramic coatings will give your new car a sleek, mirror-like shine that will last for years to come. You can easily maintain this freshly waxed look without ever having to wax your car. GTechniq is 100 times thicker than a typical wax coating and will not wash away or break down over time.
Ceramic coatings require less maintenance
Ceramic coatings form a permanent bond with the paint of your car, unlike other products that require frequent reapplications. In addition, the sleek surface created by the ceramic coating will prevent dirt, dust, and other particles from sticking to the paint, which means car washes will be easier and won’t need to be done as frequently.
Ceramic coatings are extremely hydrophobic
The hydrophobic nature of a ceramic coating will cause water to bead up and roll off of your car instead of sitting on the paint and causing corrosion. Hydrophobicity is key to protecting your car’s paint, and you simply won’t find this level of water resistance in most other paint protection products.
A ceramic coating provides a superior protective layer that is chemical resistant, harder than factory clear coating, hydrophobic and permanent – all in one product.
At Adelaide Paint Protection we carry several of the top brands of ceramic coatings. You’ll have the peace of mind that the work will be done by an expert technician who stands by their work. You can visit us at our Flinders Park location or contact us today for more information on applying a ceramic coating to your new car.
